A benefit of fast-casual franchising is the diversity of food options. A fast-casual franchisor that specializes in churros is the Churromania franchise. Churromania was established in 1997 in Venezuela. It quickly amassed more than a dozen franchised locations and went international within four years with a location in Miami, Fla. By 2005, the churro franchise won the Profranquicia Award for the best franchise of the year. Over the next couple of years, Churroman expanded throughout Latin America and began selling Hot Chocolate for retail. As a franchisee, you can appreciate the fast-casual brand's commitment to social responsibility. The brand's social responsibility program is called Viva La Musica, which provides needy children with instruments that would otherwise be unaffordable. The goals of the program are to increase music appreciation, foster group learning, and provide kids with a positive outlet. Churromania recently joined the Miami Music Project. The non-profit organization uses music as a vehicle for social transformation and the empowerment of children.
The ideal candidate should allign with the brand's values of excellence, passion, professionalism, and trustworthiness. The brand's menu includes CripyMania, TwistMania, ChurroBites, and more. In addition to food options, customers can also enjoy shakes, smoothies, and the ChurroShake. To add more profitability to your location, you can have third-party partnerships with delivery services like UberEats, DoorDash, and Grub Hub. You can expect an initial training program that covers everything you need to know about running the business properly. This includes hiring, culture, sales, and more. The support and training are ongoing.
